The Vienna Jewish Community has been notified by the authorities, on making representations demanding the confiscation of the Hitlerist placards posted up in the streets of Vienna, proclaiming that Hitler will lead his men through the Red Sea of Jewish blood, that confiscation is impossible.

The State Attorney replied that there is no clause in the Press Law which gives him power to confiscate the placards, and the Community has been given the same answer at police headquarters and by the City Billposting Company.
